The summer series of The 9pm Edict kicks off today with our special guest, the wonderful Andrew P Street — journalist, commentator, raconteur, and bearded person.

We talk about many things, including parenting, poetry, pubic lice, productivity, journalism, capsicums, mullets, the Vaccine Police, the Bishop of Worcester, urine therapy, NFTs, and of course the continuing global pandemic.

And, of course, that whole thing about the Serbian tennis player and his visa.

  • I'm an author, journalist, columnist and failed indie rock star. I live and work in Adelaide, Australia, although when I first wrote this bit "Adelaide" was spelled "Sydney", and I've written two books on politics and one on music, as well as writing for the Sydney Morning Herald, the Guardian, the ABC, Rolling Stone, Cosmos, the Monthly, Time Out, NME, Elle, and pretty much anyone else with a freelance budget.
